A couple of weeks ago, I decided I would make a gift for my husband for his birthday. I chose to make him a pair of pj (pajama) pants. I chose a reversible shirting fabric that I found a Jo-Ann’s.
It has a nice check pattern on one side, while the solid side is sort of a chambray-type look. This is a nice, light-weight fabric that I thought would be good for Springtime.
The pattern I used I’ve probably had since about 1990. The year on the pattern envelope says 1989. Anyway, I had never cut into it in all these years. I had actually bought this pattern because I liked the robes and I had always intended to make one for myself. I made the robes, but not with this pattern.
So, I decided to use this for the pants for my husband.
These have a fly front (which was easy to make). I used snaps for the closure.
So, while I am all about keeping organized and getting rid of things that I don’t use or need, occasionally I find it worthwhile to hang on to those classics that can’t be found anymore, like this pattern.
An easy project and a happy husband. It’s all good!
